Ripped off Charging Port=Trashed Galaxy Exhibit SCH-T599 Logic Board?
Believe I have made a noobie mistake.
I was having a hard time desoldering a Samsung Galaxy Exhibit SCH-T599 charging port. Because of past trial and errors I didn't use a heating gun, only a soldering iron. I desoldered the sides, heated the pins solder and pulled the port up and off.
Those little metal 'thingys' (that the pins make contact with) CAME OFF the logicboard, still stuck to the solder on the pins.
I got the little metal pieces off the old port (but lost one of them...)
Did I just trash the phone?
Can someone at least tell me what the heck those little metal bits are called?
I tried my best but... nope, haha. I couldn't for the life of me get those little wire bits to stay. For now, I'm just going to steer clear of these charging ports. Maybe I'll get some junk parts to practice on (off to ebay!).
Regardless THANKS GUYS for all the info! ^_^
